Arriva is demonstrating its ongoing commitment to sustainability this by encouraging local people to reduce their carbon footprint and take the bus – rewarding them with free gardening kits and seed pots.
The Arriva Angels will be getting on services throughout Wirral and South Liverpool giving passengers the chance to receive a desktop gardening kit and seed pots, on 12th and 13th February, to encourage people to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
The initiative comes after a string of moves from the bus company to reduce its carbon emissions in Liverpool including a £21 million investment in greener transport in 2017, which saw 72 hybrid, electric and gas buses introduced on services throughout the North West.
Lisa Pearson, Head of Marketing commented: “Go Green Week is a fantastic way to raise awareness and educate the nation about the issue of air pollution. This is something which the company wholeheartedly supports in line with Arriva’s wider clean-air strategy, that aims to dramatically reduce our carbon footprint.
We hope these gifts will help our passengers consider the way they contribute to the carbon economy in the UK, and spare a moment to look at how they can inject a more eco-friendly approach to other aspects of their lives.”
For those passengers unable to travel on 12th and 13th February, Arriva will also be giving their followers the chance to enter the ‘Go Green’ competition on Facebook and Twitter where they can also win a mini greenhouse.
